Awhile ago I did a post about googlegangers. I explained that a googleganger is someone who shares your name. You can find these people when you look your name up on Google.
The New York Times recently did an article on the subject. (Did I scoop the New York Times? I did mine last October and they did theirs a few days ago. OK, probably not but a gal can dream can’t she?) The article talks about some fascinating aspects of the subject. Could you share more than just a name with your googleganger? Take a look at the article and see what you think.
